About John Catt Educational
Established but contemporary
- We’ve been around for 60 years, but our approach is never stale. We stay up-to-date on the latest research and work with current practitioners to make sure we deliver material that is high-quality, timely, and relevant.
- Our authors include recognized experts, along with a diverse group of fresh voices from the classroom, but we ensure all content is of the highest caliber, no matter who the contributor.
Connecting research with practice
- Teachers’ experience is valuable, but not every teacher has had the same training or professional development; therefore, proven research-based strategies are valuable for every teacher to access. We concentrate on what works in schools.
- We deliver strategies based on research, but with an eye on how to use them in a real classroom environment. This is about practice, not theory.
New voices, timeless topics
- We bring in as many new voices as possible, but ensure they are committed to covering the topics that really matter.
- We’re not interested in chasing the latest fad, but we do want to amplify diverse perspectives on essential topics that are both timely and timeless.
- Professional development that is easy to use, quickly digestible, but always rigorous and substantial
Our books are efficient -- combining the important qualities of being both quick and effective. Educators have limited time, so we want them to use that time on materials that work.
By covering key subjects from multiple angles, we can provide materials that every educator can use.
